We are a multi-award winning organisation, specialising in providing services to Adults and Children across the UK and seek an inspiring manager to set up and forge the success path for this new service!

We are currently growing our portfolio of services and are actively recruiting talented individuals to join our team!

Overview of the position:

Are you an experienced Home Manager who has a positive track record with OFSTED outcomes (Good or Outstanding)?

The residential home will be a step down to our Fostering Service and will be registered for up to 6 young individuals aged 7 - 12 years old who have Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs (SEMH). Our current, similar service offers highly successful therapeutic support using the Trauma Model and PACE to create attachments and we now wish to recreate this success by supporting more vulnerable children.
